Failed TV pilot from 1950 called "Let's Join Joanie". Two years before she starred in the semi-popular 50's sitcom "I Married Joan", Joan Davis did this unsuccessful pilot. I don't know much about this pilot, Which curiously runs 33 minutes long despite the fact that it features no commercials. Don't watch it expecting comedy gold, But it does have historic value, and is kinda amusing. The picture quality is horrible. I plan to upload a better file, but the picture quality...

Failed TV pilot from 1961 called "Daddy-O". This sitcom pilot is filled with twists! Odd, But amusing. I think the reason it wasn't picked up is because they would of run out of storylines quickly. It's Worth watching. ( 16 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, 60's TV, 1960's Television, Sixties, Pilot, Public Domain, Rare, Retro
A failed TV pilot called "Time Out for Ginger", based on the play of the same name. Slightly surreal and confusing, It's easy to see why this pilot wasn't turned into a series, Although this pilot is still watchable, with a special guest star that makes it worth downloading. Well below the standards of the time! ( 21 reviews ) Topics: Classic TV, Retro, Failed TV Pilot, Failed TV Pilots, TV, Television, Rare, Flop
